The 34th Annual Great Grain Wellness Relay was held this past weekend in the Max Bell Centre at the University of Manitoba. For the second year in succession, KidSport Winnipeg has been the beneficiary charity. Last year, we benefited to the tune of almost $9,000.
This year there was 44 teams of five runners plus lapcounters - a crowded field indeed. Each team runs for the two hours, with the teams who cover the most distance receiving trophies. There were teams with some very imaginative tshirt designs - we're looking at you "We got the runs" - the music and happy atmosphere makes for a fun event. This year, the organisers added a new Beer Mile to the afterparty, a relay of 12 teams of 2 people.
